This post was written by my lovely wife, Michelle. Thanks sweety!
Jake’s been talking a little about our “Redecorate for Zero Dollars” series. So here’s a little intro:
This seriously all started with my Naked Lady Party. We had a lot of left over clothes so I went to a local thrift shop to donate them. I decided to take a quick peek inside, looking for potential treasures, and found this beauty.
So then I left after a little slap on my own wrist and a reminder that I already have enough couches. Got home, posted this pic on facebook and showed Jake. A few encouraging comments later Jake is telling me that I can get it if I sell something else. DONE. So I guess technically I took a loan out against myself…and borrowed the $30 to buy the couch. Don’t worry I sold something to cover the cost shortly after. I had a couple ideas of what to do with it but mostly I was just letting the sofa speak to me.
So begins the tally of selling and buying….which I’ll go into later :) I know you’re dying to know, but remember, this is just the intro
Right now I’m $100 ahead, just took a trip to IKEA and we’re working on a completely different room now. We’ve got something big in the works so stay tuned!
Here’s what we’re starting with….
(side note: there used to be a table and a desk in here, which I sold to cover the couch cost plus some….so that’s why it’s extra bad right now.)
Stay tuned to see if we can actually fix this mess for zero dollars!
